Indoor playgrounds have been popping up all over TOwn. And given the winter we’ve been having, we couldn’t be more thankful for some new inside options. Add Kids Fun Town to that list.
About a month old, this eastend play space on Danforth Ave just west of Woodbine Ave has all you need and then some to keep the six-and-unders busy — from a bouncy castle and ball pit to a playhouse and piano.
It’s a typical-of-the-area storefront size, so it can feel cozy and maybe a bit overwhelming given the number of activities and toys (then add in the hum of bouncy castle and children’s music in the background.) Capacity is around 20 kids, depending on the number of adults in TOw. We were there on a Friday morning with about 10+ other children and it didn’t feel crowded. My preschooler loved the mini-rock climbing structure and basketball net, while the toddler got into the playhouse and ride-on toy mini-roller coaster thingy.
